Taste of Dalmatia Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Taste of Dalmatia Day Tour from Dubrovnik

After you depart Dubrovnik, start your day trip through Dalmatia by visiting the charming village of Orašac, and take part in the production of olive oil in the old-fashioned way, where the mill is driven by a horse. Here, you will also have the opportunity to taste some homemade cheese, smoked ham and wine in a traditional Croatian house.

Enjoy a tour of Ston, which in the times of the Dubrovnik Republic, was the second-most important town in the area. Its wealth was derived from the salt works that are still functioning today. Although it was known for its spectacular city walls, the region today is predominantly known as the oyster capital of Croatia. After the tour, you will have free time in Ston to explore its city walls, one of the longest city walls in Europe. You will be served a tasty seafood platter with octopus, mussels, small fish and an oyster.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

I enjoyed this tour. I met a few Swedish Diplomates at the table. We enjoyed wine, smoked ham, fresh veggies and olive oil. I don't eat oysters, so my only criticism is that they should have an option for non oyster eaters. Half our table didn't care for mussels/oysters.

visit to farm with food and wine excellent

Our day in Dalmatia was brilliant. We caused a problem over pick up but they kindly waited for us. The places they took us were lovely and everywhere we went the locals wanted to feed us. We have used Viator several times before and would have no hesitation in using them in the future.

Great trip

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

Nice tour, shown a lot of countryside and explained history to us

4 star rating: Recommended December 2013

This trip was a nice break for us - we got to check out the towns, try yummy home-made Mediterranean food and wine, and meet nice fellow travelers. Only problem is that you sit in the bus for a little too long. Also the two guides, though really nice, didn't really connect with the guests - so it wasn't all that memorable. Would recommend if you have a lot of days and don't feel like driving into the countryside yourself!

4 star rating: Recommended May 2012

A great day out! The guide was very informative and knowledgeable, the lunch was delicious, yes the best smoked ham we had in Croatia as was the red wine that went with it. Ston is a quiet, picturesque town and if you are a seafood fan, you'll love the mussels, oysters and calamari. Timing was perfect, not too long or short and we took in some great views. Good value for money!

4 star rating: Recommended December 2010

Great day out, a chance to see some authentic Croatia. Whatever you do, don't have breakfast - there is plenty of very good, locally-produced food on offer throughout the day. Absolutely do it - and be prepared to drink wine at 9am.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2014

The tour was okay but nothing much to see in this trip. The stop at the olive oil production got to be boring but the food that they served was quite good.

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2012

Our tour leader was very good and we really enjoyed the visit to the olive grove. The trip to Ston and the seafood meal was a waste of time as far as we were concerned. The food was served without any comments from locals as to its origins etc and the local wine was terrible and from my observations was not enjoyed by other members of the party either.This part of the tour would be rated 0 by Diane and myself. Sorry if these comments seem harsh but we would not recommend this tour to our friends and family while the Ston section remains within the days activities. It is a pity as the visit to the olive grove was so enjoyable.
